Summary judgment for client in deliberate intent case

Our client, a large chemical company, was accused of Deliberate Intent. Deliberate Intent is an extension of Workers’ Compensation in which an employee may collect extra compensation if the employer is shown to have deliberately and intentionally exposed the employee to harm.

In this case, the plaintiff claimed a variety of health conditions due to exposure to toxic chemicals. Our client received summary judgment due to insufficient evidence. The court also found that a prior settlement agreement released our client from any claims against them.
